Reveal CommentSiddhartha Kunzru bt Hesham Barr (Sep 12) 3-6, 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match that had everything - great winners from the baseline, volleys, drop shots and to-and-fro momentum shifts. Hesham dictated play in the 1st set with his booming serves (coupled with few Krygios-like slower ones for surprise) and didn’t let me get into a rhythm. The momentum shift happened in the 2nd set when I won an important game 0-2 and couple of break points down. 3rd set was also closely contested, thankfully for me I managed to grab a lead early and run with it. Great to meet you mate and hope to play again with you soon.."  -- Siddhartha
